I just installed a mailing list software on one of my forum.
Because mass email function of phpBB 3 does not work, I have to pick phplist, one of best free mail list software.
I introduced this software before. Now it is v 2.10.9 which released on 29 January 2009.
I have some tips need to be recorded for future reference.
1) User list is exported from phpBB database through phpmyadmin.
2) Gmail/Google Apps setting for bounce email on phplist configuration file.
$bounce_mailbox_host = 'pop.gmail.com';
$bounce_mailbox_user = 'firstname.lastname@example.org';
$bounce_mailbox_password = '********';
$bounce_mailbox_port = "995/pop3/ssl/novalidate-cert" ;
3) User list file is cvs format.
Please be remember to use tab delimiter, do not use common as delimiter.
The performance of phplist is great.
Look at the sending record.
771 messages sent in 247.39 seconds (11219 msgs/hr)
So fast. I like it.
